|Discrete event simulation||
A technique often used by engineers in the design and modification of
production systems, whereby models output statistical estimates of
performance, using graphic animation to help create a greater
understanding of system dynamics.
Production of distinct items such as automobiles and computers.
|Discrete part manufacturing||
a manufacturing process that produces discrete parts in comparatively small lots or batches of from one to perhaps 50,000.
data protection by duplication on disk drives.
The measured distance traveled by a point from its position at rest. Peak to
the physical and/or logical connectivity of hardware, software, information, and load sharing.
a system consisting of a group of connected computers sharing software, information or load.
Systems that determine optimal quantities of each product to be made at
each plant and to be distributed to each warehouse, such that
manufacturing and distribution costs are minimized and customer demands
The characteristic of a workforce which is a result of individual
differences between its members. Specific differences may include:
gender, workforce minorities, or individual disabilities. Workforce

|Document management system||
Allows users to store, search, and manipulate documents electronically
and to maintain a library of text and images in a compact space. Most
systems also provide a means for passing documents across a network.
periods where computers, equipment, or manufacturing systems are not available to perform work.
A common occurrence in time-proportional controllers. It refers to the
difference in temperature between the set point and where the system
temperature actually stabilizes due to the time-proportioning action of
Digital signal processing or digital signal processor.
